  1. What an excellent service! I immediately bookmarked this one; no more searching through several different (though all generally poor IMO) online catalogs for many of the parts I’m looking for. The price and availability comparison is really helpful too.

    I find it annoying that the search results overlap. Other than that, it seems pretty cool.

    Strangely, a search for “uv led” returns almost the exact opposite of what you want — infrared leds.
